For sure, this is not for the very first time that the state of Uttar Pradesh has witnessed pure appeasement, sheer breaking of laws, and almost nil discipline. Even in the 1990s, when Mr. Mulayam Singh served the state as the Chief Minister, his love for a specific community was known to all.
Who can forget how
he backed the men of the minority caste carrying illegal weapon
alleging that violence against them demands such defensive measures.
It has been decades now that the political combat of U.P.
has just become community-centric, wherein
voters of particular castes and communities are
paid undeserving paybacks and freedom to go even against the
law, to get hold of power.
It appears as if
the police, the ministers, and even the men working in government
departments have gone missing in the state. CM, Mr.
Akhilesh Yadav appears concerned for the mishaps; however
subsequent disasters prove that no one cares for
the law. Why a few voters chose to go with the SP in 2012
is known to all; however such massive seats could not have been won
without the support of all the residents of U.P. leaving
some. And they elected SP candidates just because the
reign of Mayawati could not give them what other states attained
during those years. Now the same cluster speaks about better law
and order condition from 2007 to 2012.
The recent episode
of gang rape and forced religious conversion in Meerut
occurred anywhere in the country; however would the criminals have
been so relaxed anywhere else, or for that matter would the
policemen have been so reckless? And then the authentic
protest of another political group is looked upon as favoring
communalism and disturbing the secularist setup.
does 'secularism' mean to the SP leaders? Few
appeasing words for a minority community, sanction of funds for
just a particular cluster, and favor of even the wrongs
committed are the only ways adopting which the SP has been trying
to prove its secularism.
Over 600 incidents
of communal hatred have been recorded by the policemen in the
U.P, post the declaration of 2014 general polls. A report also
reveals that every third of such mishap has occurred either in or
nearby the constituencies, where assembly polls are scheduled over
the next six months. And even when the state
government alleges that the BJP is trying to violate the
communal peace, do the policemen and other liable men forget
that they have the ultimate control of power and are accountable
for proper law and order in the state? Why aren't the SP
supporters asked to act pro-actively with a view to curbing any
unauthentic actions in the state?
I am afraid that if
the milieu subsists, SP may come out as the next Congress in
the 2017 polls. When everyone is aware of multiple power
centers, laidback approach of the police,excessive freedom
to a special cluster, and nil governance, why isn't the young and
vibrant CM of the state ready to undertake corrective actions?
With Mr. Amit Shah
as the head, the BJP is all set to blow away all the regional parties
in case they continue ruling in the same old manner. Time
has changed. Voters in the general polls of 2014 voted for
prosperity, not for personal perks. If
the governing lasts as same, the SP will just be
left with a few voters and hell lot of accusations.
Today, Indians are anticipating for superior work
prospects, quality education, and enhanced living standard.
Until when would we scuffle to just bring harmony among
communities? Even a trivial communal disturbance is a curse for the
society. PM Modi will have to intervene in the U.P. milieu with
a view to ensuring that the state government favours
only legitimate acts.
